black midi formed in 2017, and since then, have released a slew of genre-defying releases. Debut LP Schlagenheim arrived in 2019, with Cavalcade following in 2021. A covers EP arrived earlier this year that saw the band putting their spin on King Crimson’s ‘21st Century Schizoid Man,’ Captain Beefheart’s ‘Moonlight on Vermont,’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘Love Story.’

The trio’s most recent album, Hellfire, was released this July, after being previewed with the singles ‘Welcome to Hell’, ‘Eat Men Eat’ and ‘Sugar/Tzu’. The record was written during lockdown in London following the completion of Cavalcade. When announcing the album, member Geordie Greep explained that “if Cavalcade was a drama, Hellfire is like an epic action film.”
